Aqaba to Lavrio - Log #017# - Israel (Tel Aviv-Yafo)

This sign is written in the three main languages spoken in Israel, Hebrew, Russian (Russian is spoken by at least 750000 ethnic Jewish immigrants from the former Soviet) and Arabic (20% of the Israeli citizens are Arabs). It is worth to mention that even the Israelis are loosely divided into the Ashkenazi group of Jews (of European descent) and the Sephardim or Mizradi (of northern African or Babylonian descent)
